Acer X3400 ethernet error
The acer X3400 refurb that I purchased always seemed to have a flaky network connection. Then, I think, it's power strip got turned off while it was running and it no longer connected to any network. The emachine had trouble running from a cold start and I got a pink screen several times, once when loading the nVidia chipset driver from Acer. That's when I shut the ethernet controller off in bios. (From a restart, press Delete during boot, Select Integrated Peripherals, select Onboard Lan Controller, press enter, select Disabled.) This corrected all boot issues so far. Next, I went to Amazon and bought "USB 2.0 to Ethernet Converter" for $8.87. (I know this is a USB2 10/100 bps RJ45 adapter, but reviews do say the Windows 7 drivers are embedded. Also, the emachine's got a couple free USB slots, hehe...feel free to get a better USB network device as needed.) I will report on the outcome of this device, but so far, multiple reboots of the emachine have been flawless. I can't say for sure that there is an an electrical problem with the 9200 nvidia ethernet's just my opinion. (Love that you loaded Knoppix, that sh$% rocks! Reminds me of using HP-UX, except, for any proc:>), go linux!)

You started off by referring to an Acer X3400 (Aspire?) PC, then later in your post you mention an emachines PC, so which is it? Very confusing.

Emachines support:

Sorry for the confusion...I should not have mentioned eMachine. The computer I am referring to is a Acer Aspire AX3400-U2012
